It's a very blustery day again today... the wind is roaring down the river corrugating the surface and a duck was sitting very still on the bank trying hard to be invisible to me. She would have found it hard to keep position on the water today, let alone make progress upstream.
The winds have blown half of a willow down too. But the sun is making an appearance earlier and earlier, and the magnolia flowers are almost over and the daffs are out. Spring is here!
